Service was great. Bathrooms are ok, not great. The only reason it’s not a 5 is because it’s kind of a party scene here. Thumping music all night long at a dance club next to the dock. The best part was there was space when Newport was otherwise full.

Dock hands were great. A little interesting getting into their basin, but we had good guidance over the radio. Dock hands were very helpful with tie up, power, water, etc. Reviews from 2017 and 2018 mentioned that the restrooms needed updating. I did not see any mention in 2019 reviews so I was hoping that was taken care of. Sadly, the restrooms/showers are not up to Newport standards, or even what I would expect from any marina. Also, the restrooms should be checked a few times each day to ensure that supplies do not run out. Updating the restrooms would seem to be a good winter project. It would move this review to 5 stars. Other reviews mentioned the night club (The Dock), and yes it is loud, but it was not a problem for us as we were at the far end of the marina. We did have lunch there and were pleased. The marina is at the south end of downtown and we were very pleased with the shops and restaurants in the immediate area. Sunday were went up to the Banister Warf area which was packed with tourists. If you are looking to relax, this is a good area.

With over thirty thousand miles at sea under my belt I will say that weatwind marinas bathroom facilities are the worst I have ever seen. They are like an El savadoran prison. When you pay the same as the other marinas in Newport you expect clean and modern showers. They are cinderblock dirty walls, torn curtains and moldy and dirty. I will never go back here. If you are fine with dirty showers and bathrooms and loud music from the bar this is the place for you.

Good slips, nice protected area. Little funny where the pedestals were (up high off the floating dock on the boardwalk behind), but not an issue. People were very nice. Facilities were fine, but could use some sprucing up. Be aware it's literally right next to a club and a bar. Wasn't loud on Thursday night, but I assume it would be loud Fri/Sat. Would stay again.

Staff was friendly and accommodating - got a great slip. Location on lower Thames Street is perfect for many shops, restaurants, etc. Some issues: bathrooms need some renovations; marina is located on same property as a restaurant and bar, which were quite loud, until late.
